John J. Turner (1844- )


  • "United States General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934", index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 02 Jun 2014), John J Turner, 1892. John filed for an invalid pension from Missouri in 1892.
  • "United States 1890 Census of Union Veterans and Widows of the Civil War", index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 02 Jun 2014), John J Turner, 1890. John is living in St. Louis, Missouri in 1890, and is listed as a veteran of the 54th Massachusetts - Company D.
